Paper Abstract

The design of some 1-D waveguiding photonic bandgap (PBG) devices has been carried out by utilizing a model based on the Bloch-Floquet theorem. A complete analysis of the propagation characteristics, including the modal propagation constants, electromagnetic field harmonics and total field distribution, transmission and reflection coefficients, total forward and backward power flow in the structure, guided and radiated power, and total losses, enable the optimization of the design in very short CPU time.
